On the beach at Keurboomstrand I decided this would make a good, simple shot of light and shadow.

Theres a really nice image trying to get out here Averil. You did well to see the potential, - the colours are gorgeous, and with the shadows darkened, it really pops.

Making the shadows darker involves making black = black, and this also has the effect of intensifying the colours.

With this tweak, and sharpening, you have a lovely print. The version Ive uploaded is cropped to a more panoramic format, to try to9 make something of that arc of blue coming across the top. View large.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Willie and a wonderful year ahead for you. Your mod really brings out the pic beautifully.

Well seen, but you can see the extra impact out of Willie's mod. I wonder about a subject, too. There is no focal point. Something, I know not what, on the bottom left third.
